Ave Maria │ Libera

I thought that the time was right again to feature Libera, the extraordinary choir from Great Britain.  The "Ave Maria", in its various setting, have always been among my choral favorites.  In this edition of Angel Watchers I am featuring two mystical musical settings of the "Ave Maria" sung beautifully by Libera.  The topmost video is a new version of the "Ave Maria" that was composed by Robert Prizeman, who incidentally is the founder and director of Libera.  It is very moving.  The second video is of Giulio Caccini's (1551-1618) surprisingly modern sounding "Ave Maria".  I was not able to find any video of Libera singing the Caccini version, but I did find a video of them singing it with some awesome pictures.  This video slide-show should be called "Our Lady From Outer-Space, Pray For Us".  Safe journeys to all the fans of Angel Watchers, wherever you may be.
